>> 7:11 right now on a friday morning and let's look at some of the stories making headlines now. an unexpected day off for government workers because of a small fire that happened last night at the commerce department herbert hoover building. started on an empty room of the third floor, at constitution avenue and 14th street. the building will be closed today. the commerce department employees who were building authorized to take administrative leave or work. how far, emergency employees should report to work. we found our monthly jobs report is due out today before the elects. it's not looking optimistic. unemployment is expected to rise to 9.7%. economists say that -- private employers added 75,000 jobs last month and that number will be offset by the loss of census jobs. economists sate job situation won't improve any time soon. president obama wants
7:13 am
congress to fix a bill the white house thinks could make the current foreclosure crisis worse. the president won't allow foreclosure and other documents to be accepted among multiple states and done see electronically, relaxing rules on what paperwork needs to be note raised. concern is high after executives at several banks last week said they never verified if documents for foreclosures they were approving were accurate. and check in with tony perkins. accurate when it comes to knowing what is going on out there. >> and i'm not going to worry or stress about it. >> good. >> you're right. >> and if we say 79 and hits 81, is that a bad thing? >> not a bad thing. >> a great weekend across the region and start by showing you the current temperatures at the area airport and that is a cool start to the day. 55 degrees at reagan international airport, dulles, 46 degrees out there and bwi marshal coming in at 50
7:14 am
degrees. temperatures across the united states, pretty much what you would expect them to be and that is 40s and 50s for the most part, 60s in albuquerque. miami, the warm spot, of course and that degrees from and look at the eastern u.s. and rarely do you see it this quiet and nothing is happening in the eastern u.s. because of a large dome of high pressure sitting there and prohibiting the weather from developing under it and that is going quiet. not just here but across the eastern u.s. the next few days and your five-day forecast high again, 76 today under sunny skies and not breezy as it was yesterday. pleasant and tomorrow, a high of 79 and warm and sunny, sunday, highs in the mid-70s, sunday, monday, 80s, tuesday
7:15 am
we'll add a few clouds into the equation, 81 for your high and that is not bad at all. >> no complaints. >> and julie wright might be okay with that forecast. she should be. >> and i am, actually. and on the roads right now, you're going to find yourself in a jam and leaving kennelworth. all of the slow traffic continues to howard road and this is the problem. inbound south capitol street, we have been talking about this the last few hits and everyone is slowing to seat pedestrian. it's the susan g. komen three- day walk for the cure that is taking place and pedestrians are leaving that park in the direction of german town, maryland, by the end of the walk and there is a lot of police presence and pedestrian traffic. kennelworth avenue to howard road and inbound along south
7:16 am
capitol street and that is slow and coming off to the parkway and to that freeway. southbound 270, lanes are open and no problems to report. finding yourself below speed and towards mda. lanes are open out of rockville to the split and delays and again at 123 and the stretch at the beltway. that is a check of your fox-5 on-time traffic. >> and more on the cheating scandal. earlier, county officials say there is no indication that dozens of cadets cheated on their police academy tests. an audit shows a instructor recorded perfect scores for more than 30 cadets who are officers and possibly out of laziness and that is what was said when the tests were checked. prince georges county states attorney glen ivy, though, said the allegations alone will complicate any criminal proceedings they're a part of and what does this mean?
7:17 am
joining us now is the criminal defense attorney chris lobby. thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> this is important. the police chief said at this point, there is no way to tell or assume that they cheated or the fault of an instructor. that said, the state's attorney saying the fact that the potential is out there could affect a number of the cases. what is the biggest fear as to what could happen as a result of this? college a defense attorney, the biggest thing is disclosure and if there is a difference between honesty, cheating and a sloppy environment. all training institutions probably have a sloppy instructor, so, if there is no cheating involved, it can still be relevant. but it's a big difference, i believe, the investigating is still ongoing and, for example, let's say it's just sloppy. an officer's training can be a important part of the case. often it's used and the reason for, let's say, that they have
7:18 am
searched someone and based on their training. the defense attorneys can decide how you see information and that judge can rule on whether or not it matters and the difference between the honesty allegation and mere sloppy training environment is a big one. >> and what you're saying is along the lines that just because it happened on the academy, not on the day-to-day job has a major impact on what they doing today even though this happened in an academy set something. it can have a impact, a lesser one but can. your client's walking down the street. the police officers stopped him and eventually it leads to a search. one of the things in court is going to be why did they do it and one of the reasons they will give is based on their
7:19 am
training. if the defense attorney can prove it was a slope environment and everyone was given the answers and not on a dishonesty level, this could affect the case and could cause a case to be thrown out and in the big picture, if they articulate the reasons and get proper experience often, it would not end up in this big of a result. >> right. >> do you think that we will see that now? obviously, there is a potential if you have this many officers. >> uh-huh. >> they have made numerous arrests, say, in the time period between the academy and the present day, do you think we will see an influx now of defends coming forward and saying, well, maybe my case should be reviewed? >> you have to do it for sure and you need to get to the bump which officers were in your case and what happened to the specific officer. each case would have to be looked at differently and there
7:20 am
is no range of conduct and some of them are good officers and, yeah, if you have been convicted or felt you needed to plea guilty because you couldn't contest a certain matter, it would be the duty of the attorney to look into it and that sounds like the prosecutor's office is doing the right thing and plans to disclose the information. >> seems like a huge strain, though o prosecutor's office, in a county where you already have a lot of backlogs of cases and if they would have to go through and review the cases. it would be a huge strain. >> definitely. depends on how many officers were involved, how long they have been on the force --fo, how big were the cases they were in, it's a lot of work. >> and what do you think is the end result? >> i can tell you i hope there is no overt cheating and dishonesty. i always have that -- about the police. it would be a bigger deal. it would effect old cases. if it's a matteref training and there is disclosure of it and
7:21 am
the defense system can play out and the courts can rule on it, it may not effect as much. >> and there is a lot involved. great insight to hear and appreciate you joining us this morning. >> and back to you. >> thank you. 7:20 and 55 degrees on this friday morning. maryland governor -- with the commander in chief. and the man expected to be d.c.'s next mayor, a look at local politics when we come back. is come now might be a good time to get your holiday shopping list together. it's time for the ifival. you can find the one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone. check outing arts and crafts this morning and we're checking in with her later this hour. stay with us. 7:21 now. playing )
